What is a pallet conveyor, and what are they used for?
A pallet conveyor is a heavy-duty piece of mechanical equipment designed specifically to automate the transport of pallets. Generally, pallets are used for transporting a large number of goods in a batch, so these pallets of goods are often incredibly heavy.
Pallet conveyors are most often used to improve the efficiency of pallet handling and transport, greatly reducing the need for forklift trucks. Therefore pallet conveyors are often found in warehouses, factories, and other environments which regularly transport and receive large goods or items in bulk.
Pallet conveyors can be designed in a modular fashion to include many different components. For example, complete systems can be designed for the preparation of pallets to assist in the wrapping, strapping, and labelling process.
Some arduous environments may require a purpose-designed and manufactured conveyor. Places like cold stores can lead to conveyors malfunctioning in freezing temperatures. That’s why pallet conveyors should be specially designed to suit the environment in which they will be required to operate.
Gravity roller pallet conveyors are a type of unpowered conveyor.
As such manual force or gravity is required to push the pallets over the rollers. Gravity pallet conveyors have heavy-duty rollers mounted within a frame which sits off the floor.
Alternatively, floor-level roller tracks can be installed as shown below.
It is important to have some sort of braking control so that pallets can be stopped at any point for safety purposes.
We will ensure your pallet conveyors are built to suit your exact specification including any required safety features.
Chain driven roller pallet conveyors are ideal for transporting loaded pallets, and other very heavy items. They are incredibly durable, with a frame manufactured from fully welded steel.
This type of roller conveyor is positively driven through the use of chains. These chains attach sprocketed rollers to one another which keeps each of the rollers turning consistently with no loss of friction.
These conveyors are available in a wide range of widths, lengths, and heights to suit almost any sized pallet for most applications.
Spaceguard manufacture both manual and automatic pallet conveyor turntables. Turning on 90° or 180° angles dependent on whether the turn table's used to change the pallet orientation or to turn corners. Within a conveyor system. These units can be supplied as stand alone conveyors, or incorporated within a turn key conveyor system.
Pallet Chain Transfers
Chain transfers are used to move pallets from one conveyor line to another parallel conveyor. Likewise, if the pallet has a flat bottom it can be used to take the pallet around a corner. However, this does alter the pallet orientation.
There are several types of pallet transfers, these include roller and also pop up chain transfers.
We build usually build these units into the conveyor module to suit. They can also be supplied as stand-alone units for incorporation.
Pallet Gravity Roller Floor Tracks
Floor mounted gravity roller track is available as both full width and pallet runner widths.
These are an ideal method of low-cost pallet movement, and ideal for the creation of FIFO storage for pallets.
We build these to withstand rigorous heavy duty day-to-day operations, making them ideal for pallet storage and internal warehouse transport.
